_ _ Generosity, sound judgment in business, and confidence in God, form a character which preserves from fear of evil and ensures success against enemies. While a man thus truly pious is liberal, he increases in substance.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 112:5

A good man sheweth favour, and (d) lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

(d) He shows what the fruit of mercy is, to lend freely and not for gain, and so to measure his doings that he may be able to help where need requires and not to bestow all on himself.
